Times continue to change in Hollywood and around the country.
Over the past couple years, more and more celebrities have come out of the closet as gay.
But plenty of other celebrities have been accused of being gay. Some have denied the rumors; others have ignored them.
We’re not here to pass judgment on anyone, simply to rundown a list of stars whose sexuality has been questioned over recent years…
1. 50 Cent
During an interview with Andy Cohen, Vivica A. Fox implied that her ex-boyfriend was not “quite clear” on his sexuality, even implying he had something going on with Soulja Boy. 50 Cent vehemently denied these accusations on Twitter.
2. Kevin Spacey
The incredible actor has faced this rumor many times, saying of his sexuality in 2010: “People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will… Look, at the end of the day people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be.”
We’ve all heard it many times, right? That Oprah is a lesbian and has been dating best friend Gayle King for years. The talk show host says this simply isn’t true and she’d never hide her sexuality if she were gay.
4. Jeremy Renner
“It’s not f-cking true,” Renner said of this rumor in 2012. Well then.
5. Vin Diesel
Diesel hasn’t even bothered to dignify this chatter with a real response, one saying: “I’m not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors. I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence. I’m not gonna do that.”
6. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
These two go together because they’ve only been romantically linked (same sex style) to each other. Said Damon once: “I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay. As if being gay were some kind of f–king disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense.”
